Notes

3.5 Net Carbs per Whoopie Pie!
Ensure your cake batter is not too thick, whoopie pies should be wider than they are high.  If you are having trouble getting your batter to spread out try adding by the tablespoon heavy whipping cream or water until the consistency of the batter spreads out to about 1 ½- 2 inch cookies. 
Try Allulose as a Powdered sweetener in this recipe - especially the frosting. Allulose is a natural powdered sugar alternative that tastes just like sugar!  It has zero calories, zero net carbs and zero glycemic index.  Its diabetic friendly and won’t spike blood sugar.  While Swerve powdered sweetener is a great option, it does leave a bit of a cooling aftertaste in the frosting. 
If you don’t have powdered sweetener alternative you can use a coffee grinder to make your own! But it is critical you use powdered sweetener in the frosting.
The frosting for this recipe is not just for Keto Amish Whoopie pies, this frosting works well for cupcakes and cakes as well.  While this recipe makes more icing than you will need you can refrigerate it for later or like me make a double batch of Keto Amish Whoopie pie cakes and freeze some for later!   
Wrap your Keto Amish Whoopie Pies in cellophane - They will stay moist and fresh.  And its just how they do it in Pennsylvania!
